Default VAG COM for MAC OS X

Hello people,
du you know, if exist VAG COM for MAC OS X 10.10?
I have a OBD II cable, but software can be used only on windows. I need use VAG on MAC PC, without installing win 7 or 8 in to VirtualBox, or like parallel system on PC...
Thank you for your answers...

That`s bet...

Which can communicate and read mistakes code from the car...?

I did an extensive search and it was a deadend. Short of running a windows shell on your mac OS system, there is nothing that will run on the mac os. If you find something, pls report back.

Default using vag on mac

havn't tried it, but you could probally run using Crossroads or Parrellels software, which create a virtual window drive and lets you run windows based software.
or you could always run bootcamp.

I searched Crossroads, and did not come up with anyone who had successfully run it. I did post a tread on the Crossroads/ Codeweaver forum, and will let you know if anyone posts.
Once I get a USB reader and Vag.com, I am planning on running Crossroads.
Might take some tweeking, but should work.

what version of OS do you have? If you have 10 you can install windows on it and then run the vag-com

I have a BootCamp partition on my Mac that I installed an old windows OS on. Vac-Com works great. The only down side is you have to reboot into Windows when you want to run the Vac-Com software. I also installed eBahn reader for the service manuals on it.

I found that some USB devices that work with Windows on BootCamp do not work with Parallels/Windows on the Mac OS.

I use bootcamp and of course it works, as does everything.
Years ago I used virtualbox with winxp and vcds. That works fine too.

I use CodeWeaver's CrossOver software to run Windows applications.
